A bibliography on business information literacy

You may already know that I have been working on a series of training videos for undergraduate business students – essentially an information literacy program for the John Molson School of Business at Concordia University. These videos aim to present research skills and eventually a reflective model on information seeking and use behavior.

To assist me in this process, I’ve created an open bibliography on the subject of business information literacy, covering recent peer-reviewed articles on the subject. Here is the contents of the folder, as of today:
